Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) in Lakewood WA has been training students for nearly 70 years.  They will be celebrating their 70th anniversary in 2012.   CPTC offers training in over 50 fields and its students go into many in-demand fields, like computer technology and nursing. With its primary campus in Lakewood (there is a secondary campus on South Hill by Puyallup) Clover Park Technical College is situated close to Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) and works hard to make those who are stationed at the base, as well as their families, welcome members of the student population.

From Anna Matsunaga, Team Momentum, Keller Williams Realty Tacoma 253 353 2662.   This article was written and shared with me by our Team's Intern, Ronrico Jones ( he goes by "Rico")  He has been to the race way with his son and I could see his entire face light up just to think about going there.  He was totally excited to share more about it and now I am planning a surprise visit there with my son ( the oldest one is who will enjoy it!)    Here is what Rico has to say about it.  This is a great place for everyone in Pierce county, but the raceway is especially close for Lakewood residents including those who will live in the incredible new development our team will be selling soon, The Gravelly Lake Brownstones.    The Grand Prix Raceway, Indoor go cart racing in Lakewood WA          ...

From Anna Matsunaga, Team Momentum, Keller Williams Realty Tacoma 253 353 2662 www.teammomentumrealestate.com In getting ready to work with a large project in Lakewood, I have been doing some research on the area and it's history.  The history is rich and interesting even though Lakewood has only been incorporated since 1996.  Noteable residents of Lakewood have been a part of much of what has happened in all of Pierce county. There are also many historical sites now open to the public as parks and more such as Lakewold park, and Fort Steilacoom park.  The many lakes almost all have public access as well, so residents of the Lakewood area can enjoy year round lake lifestyle whether they live on the lakes themselves or not.  The lakes are known for water skiing and fishing or simply a gr...

From Anna Matsunaga, Team Momentum, Keller Williams Realty Tacoma 253 353 2662- www.teammomentumrealestate.com If you are living in or near Lakewood WA or considering living there, one of the restaurants you will want to visit is the Old Country Buffet ( or Old country Bee as they call themselves)  You need to visit, not for the fine dining, it's not fine dining, but for a nice clean all you can eat restaurant with lots of variety.  You will find it located right in Lakewood Town Center.   What I like about it most is that no matter who you are there will be things you can eat there.  They have a huge salad bar, a taco bar, a dessert bar, and several areas with all different sides and main meat dishes.  I like to go there with the kids since other than the line at the register, which mo...

Sunday was our first sampling for the Pierce County Lakes Algae Watch Project. I volunteer with this project in order to protect the safety and usability of the lake my family lives on - Lake Steilacoom in Lakewood, WA - and also to show my kids that science is useful and fun.  I never thought that when I was growing up!  On Sunday after dinner we laid out all the sampling equipment provided by the Pierce County Health Department, reviewed the instructions, packed everything into the van and drove to the Edgewater Park boat launch.  Edgewater Park on Lake Steilacoom is the official water sampling spot for the project.  My son Lukas helped me read the water temperature from the thermometer and Sophia was in charge of stacking the water sample bottles back into the cooler once they were f...

As a Realtor who enjoys selling lakefront properties as well as a homeowner who enjoys living on a lake, I am excited about a new research study that my son Lukas and I will be participating in.  We will be testing the water quality in the lake we live on - Lake Steilacoom - in Lakewood, WA.  The Pierce County Health Department is coordinating the effort, in which the water quality of 10 Pierce County Lakes, including American Lake, Lake Steilacoom, Spanaway Lake, Harts Lake, Ohop Lake, and 5 others, will be tested twice a month until September.  Tonight was our initial volunteers' meeting, where we reviewed the instructions for how to conduct the sampling, and were issued our official sampling equipment.  My son was especially impressed with the giant thermometer (for testing the water...
